Odd Ball Kill Switch
« on: August 18, 2021, 02:13:15 PM »
So restoring a Kill switch which came over from USA. The wires had been soldered together, so someone has been in there before ::)
The selector would not work. So took apart the ball indent detent and found knackered ball and spring
100461-0
So got new springs from china and stainless balls.
Then looked carefully at the original ball which was well out of round. Put a super-magnet next to it and nothing ??? ???

Its a lead pellet from a shotgun cartridge  :o
The mind of some people

The switch now works just got to resolder the wires.

Pedant alert!
It's a detent, not an indent.

Its satisfying to mend stuff at this level. Not rocket science, but worth a go and satisfying. Whats the worst that can happen.....

We need to have a "have a go" attitude.
